    Guide dogs and their significance
  • 3. Future guide dogs begin training at a very young age. As puppies they are given to a specific “Puppy Walker,” who will love, train, andcoachthe puppies in the hopes of them becoming well-qualified and adapt guide dogs.
  • 4. German Shepherds, Black and Yellow Labradors, and Golden Retrievers are the most commonly used breeds for guide and police dogs because of their obedience, quick and easy learning/ training skills, loyalty, and companionship.
  • 5. Crosswalk skills, including intersection navigation and proper curb techniques, are an integral part of guide dog training. A prospective guide dog will not “graduate” from training unlesshe/she learns how to properly navigate curbs and intersections, a natural part of everyday life that can be a matter of life or death for the blind.
  • 6. Guide dogs can be trained to do many things, including operating an ATM!
  • 7. Police dogs are just as important and widely used as guide dogs. With unfailing loyalty and obedience, police dogs serve not only their partners, but the entire community, as well.
  • 8. SAR (search and rescue) dogs are used for locating people in debris, rubble, avalanches, etc. Cadaver dogs are used specifically for detecting human remains.
  • 9. Working dogs are also used to detect narcotics, such as heroine, cocaine, and marijuana, along with bombs and other explosives.
  • 10.
  • 11. Guide dogs provide more than just the eyes to see or feet to guide, they are loyal and obedient creatures that truly care and understand there partners.
